Artist Statement
There is a special time between the spark of inspiration and the completed piece that marks both reality and total immersion. The end product becomes a physical manifestation of this creative process that has the ability to stir something deep within us with its mysterious beauty. I am absorbed and fascinated with how our lives, the earth, history, relationships are woven together creating a collective fabric of life
Peace Prevails Project: Based on the concept of the power of words, the Peace Prevails Project is created from over 300 world languages embossed in copper. The intent is to weave words of peace as symbols for the public to focus on.” I know within my heart and soul that peace prevails and is spoken in many languages”.
